TERMS OF BUSINESS
1. These terms
1.1 What these terms cover. These are the terms and conditions on which we supply products to you.
1.2 Why you should read them. Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. If you have any questions about these terms, please contact us to discuss.
1.3 Are you a business customer or a consumer? In some areas you will have different rights under these terms depending on whether you are a business or consumer. You are a consumer if:
• You are an individual.
• You are buying products from us wholly or mainly for your personal use (not for use in connection with your trade, business, craft or profession).
Provisions specific to consumers only are in red and those specific to businesses only are in blue
1.4 If you are a business customer this is our entire agreement with you. If you are a business customer, whether in the UK/EU or elsewhere, these terms constitute the entire agreement between us in relation to your purchase. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by or on behalf of us which is not set out in these terms and that you shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation based on any statement in this Agreement.
1.5 Do you live outside of the UK/EU? If you are a consumer but you don’t live in the UK or the EU, you will have the same rights as a business customer under these terms and not as a consumer. This means the red wording will not apply to you and the blue wording will apply to you. This is because the additional protections given to consumers under EU law will not apply to you.
2.Information about us and how to contact us
2.1 Who we are. We are Blithfield & Company Limited, a company registered in England and Wales. Our company registration number is 03027762 and our registered office is at 2 Inkerman Terrace, Allen Street, London W8 6QX. Our registered VAT number is 672678884.

2.4 How we may contact you. If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
2.5 "Writing" includes emails. When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes emails.
3. Our contract with you
3.1 Ordering samples. Our website has instructions on how to order samples. Although we make every effort to ensure that samples match the fabrics and wallpapers which we may later supply, small variations in colour between batches may occur as a result of the manufacturing process. We cannot therefore guarantee that products will precisely match the samples sent to you. All samples are subject to availability. We reserve the right to charge for samples, depending on the number ordered.
3.2 How to place an order. When you are ready to place an order please email us at email@example.com with your contact details and full details of the product(s) you require. We will then send you an invoice confirming and accepting your order, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.3 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
3.4 Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
4. Our products
4.1 Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images. As explained in clause 3.1, your product may not precisely match any sample sent to you. Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, because our products are handmade, all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our website have a slight tolerance.
4.2 Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.
4.3 Making sure your measurements are accurate. If we are cutting or preparing a product you are ordering to measurements you have given us, you are solely responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct. You can find information and tips on how to measure by contacting us.
5. Your rights to make changes If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
6. Our rights to make changes
6.1 Minor changes to the products. We may change the product:
6.1.1 to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
6.1.2 to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a safety issue. These changes will not affect your use of the product.
6.2 More significant changes to the products. Products may vary as a result of using natural materials, such as linen, which have inherent construction and colour variations and the printing process/weaving process may result in colour variations. No refunds will be given is such variations are not acceptable to you. You may request a sample (“stock cutting” or “cutting for approval” ) prior to finalising your order to be sure you are happy with the product you have ordered.
7. Providing the products
7.1 Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
7.2 If your delivery address is outside of the UK. If your delivery address is outside of the UK you may have to pay import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country.

We recommend you contact your local customs office for further information.
7.3 When we will provide the products. We will deliver them to you as soon as reasonably possible.
7.4 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
7.5 If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.
7.6 If you do not re-arrange delivery. If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.
7.7 When you become responsible for the goods. A product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us.
7.8 When you own goods. You own a product once we have received payment in full.

7.9.2 update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
7.9.3 make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).
7.10 Your rights if we suspend the supply of products. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product we will notify you. You may contact us to end the contract for a product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract. If we have discontinued a product and it is no longer in stock then we can only supply it if you pay for a special order which involves a minimum order and surcharges above the previously notified price of the product.
7.11 We may also suspend supply of the products if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the products when you are supposed to (see clause 14.4) and you still do not make payment within 2 weeks of us reminding you that payment is due, we will cancel your order with us.
8. Your rights to end the contract
8.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing, when you decide to end the contract and whether you are a consumer or a business customer:
8.1.1 If what you have bought is faulty or MI described you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 12 if you are a consumer and clause 13 if you are a business;
8.1.2 If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;
8.1.3 If you are a consumer and have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;
8.1.4 In all other cases (if we are not at fault and you are not a consumer exercising your right to change your mind), see clause 8.6.
8.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
8.2.1 we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
8.2.2 there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
8.2.3 we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons; or
8.2.4 you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
8.3 Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). If you are a consumer then for most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
8.4 When consumers do not have a right to change their minds. Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of:
8.4.1 any items which are made to your order or specification or are otherwise personalised (for example, made to measure curtains or upholstered furniture); or
8.4.2 any products, such as fabric, which are cut and supplied to order; and
8.4.3 any other similar product groups.
8.5 How long do consumers have to change their minds? If you are a consumer how long you have to change your mind depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
8.5.1 Have you bought goods? if so you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery.
8.6 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you are not a UK/EU consumer who has a right to change their mind (see clause 8.1), you can cancel your order if it is not a category of product described in clause 8.4 and if the order has not shipped and has not been paid for. Otherwise it is at our discretion as to whether we accept a return and give a refund. This always carries a restocking charge of 25%
8.7 will have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered and paid for.. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you are not a consumer who has changed their mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

See also clause 8.3.
We don’t supply services to our customers.
13.Your rights in respect of defective products if you are a business
13.1 If you are a business customer we warrant that on any products which are goods shall:
13.1.1 conform in all material respects with their description and any relevant specification notified to us at the point of order;
13.1.2 be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship;
13.1.3 be of satisfactory quality (within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979); and
13.1.4 be fit for any purpose held out by us.
13.2 Subject to clause 13.3, if:
13.2.1 you give us notice in writing within a reasonable time of discovery that a product does not comply with the warranty set out in clause 13.1;
13.2.2 we are given a reasonable opportunity of examining such product; and
13.2.3 you return such product to us at your cost, we shall, at our option, repair or replace the defective product, or refund the price of the defective product in full plus the cost of returning it to us.

13.3.1 you make any further use of such product after giving a notice in accordance with clause 13.2.1;

13.3.3 the defect arises as a result of us following any drawing, design or specification supplied by you;
13.3.4 you alter or repair the product without our written consent; or
13.3.5 the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal working conditions.
13.4 Except as provided in this clause 13, we shall have no liability to you in respect of a product's failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 13.1.
13.5 These terms shall apply to any repaired or replacement products supplied by us under clause 13.2.
14. Price and payment
14.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which, for the retail price only, includes VAT) will be the price notified to you by email (and as confirmed on our invoice). We take all reasonable care to ensure the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 14.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
14.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
14.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
14.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment by electronic bank transfer and cheque. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying:

If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 3 % a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank plc from time to time.

You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
14.7 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.

15.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us.

15.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products as summarised at clause 12.1 and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987

17. How we may use your personal information
17.1 How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:
17.1.1 to supply the products to you;
17.1.2 to process your payment for the products; and
17.1.3 if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us.
17.2 We may pass your personal information to credit reference agencies. Where we extend credit to you for the products we may pass your personal information to credit reference agencies and they may keep a record of any search that they do.
17.3 We will only give your personal information to other third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.
18. Other important terms
18.1 We may transfer this Agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
18.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. We may not agree if, for example, that person is outside of the UK or if we have reasonable doubt as to their ability to pay any sums due under the contract.
18.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 18.2 in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
18.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
18.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
